Storyline

Orphaned at a very young age and adopted by his uncle, a Poojari, and aunt, Premvati, Devdhar lives a poor lifestyle with them and their daughter, Radha. Poojari works for Bade Thakur and his family and prepares astrological charts and organizes prayers, and asks him for financial assistance so that Devdhar can go to Bombay and study, which is approved. Years later Devdhar has matured, returns home so that Radha could get married. He meets with and falls in love with Bade Thakur's paternal niece, Manorama, his childhood friend. She likes him too, but is very naive about love and intimacy. Radha gets married to a much older man and moves out, while Manorama's marriage is arranged with Kunwar Narendra Pratap Singh. The wedding takes place with great pomp and ceremony, and a heartbroken Devdhar leaves the village to return to Bombay. A few months later he meets with Radha, who is now pregnant, and also decides to visit his uncle and aunt. This is where he will get the shock of his life ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Not quite "Showman" there
11 October 2010 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

The writing on the wall is clear - "Prem Rog" qualifies to be the weakest link under the baton of the "Showman". Raj Kapoor fans will be disappointed with this outing.

The plot attempts to work on two levels namely realise true love and societal reforms, sadly it fails on both fronts. As I followed the narrative I felt that even Raj Kapoor realised that its not working and the nonchalant factor in the proceedings is apparent. The plot is preachy and clearly outdated for the time it was made.

Rishi Kapoor attempts to give his best shot to portray a idealist/ reformist but maybe some other actor without baggage would have been better. Padmini was a bad choice, again a fresh face could have given depth to the character who exuberates innocence and pain. The rest of the star-cast was adequate.

Music and lyrics are the only strong points of "Prem Rog". Raj Kapoor got Suresh Wadkar into the fold of RK banner. Lata as usual was at her melodious best.
